Our Campuses

Delivering educational excellence in a first class learning environment is key to everything we do at City College. We have two campuses - our main site is situated in the centre of Southampton and our specialist Marine Skills Centre is on located on the waterside in Woolston, Southampton.

 

Main Campus - St Mary Street

Our main campus has everything you would expect from a modern, well-equipped college. Here you will find first class facilities for work, study and relaxation, laid out over a pleasant site with excellent links to buses and trains.

 

The campus provides the highest quality teaching and support within a relaxed, student-focused atmosphere and offers a wide range of full and part-time courses. As well as further education courses we also offer a wide range of university accredited degrees, HNCs and HNDs.

 

Every student at our main site has access to excellent IT resources, a substantial learning resource centre, student support, hair and beauty salons, student refectory, a restaurant run by the students, fitness suite, theatre, and state of the art workshops.

 

All of this makes for a learning environment committed to student success.

 

Marine Skills Centre - Woolston

Our Marine Skills Centre in Woolston houses some of the best facilities in Southern England.

 

From everything from outboards to fiber-glass moulding, you're sure to find a course which will help you fast-track your career in the marine industry. With excellent employer links across the South East and shortages of skilled labour in the marine sector, the Marine Skills Centre is in a very unique position.

 

This campus has everything you need, including IT facilities and learning resources to aid in both vocational and theoretical studies.
